There are many resources for our firefighters. I’ve been pleasantly surprised how many resources there also are for us. Most organizations realize how much the entire family contributes to a firefighters well being. We are also first to see that something is wrong.
If you have a resource to share, please contact me.
SafeCallNow.org – Bottling up issues is common in Emergency Services. Safe Call Now is here to help. Our firefighters can call them for support AND you can call them if you feel there is something that you need help with. It is for all first responders and their families to get help.
First Responder Support Network – The mission of the First Responder Support Network (FRSN) is to provide educational treatment programs to promote recovery from stress and critical incidents experienced by first responders and their families. Again, this organization has a program for spouses. Don’t deal with issues alone.
For3Sisters.com – This an awesome resource for women and families battling breast cancer. If you or someone you know is going through it, please pass the site link. They are there to talk and help you find resources you need.
Good Neighbor Next Door Program – This program has been created for teachers and first responders to make an extremely low purchase of a home. This home needs to be your primary residence and will need rehab work. The program was created to help revitalize neighborhoods. Some of the deals are amazing.
